Strewing Mary in the month of May


Strewing Mary in the month of May.

I attempt to strew my life, my love, my devotion to Mary, by the way I live, who I am, how I pray

But May is also a good time to strew in practical ways. To enrich the unschooling life.

On our table we have the book Through The Year With Mary by fellow homeschooler Karen Edmisten. Quotes throughout the year, one for every day, quotes on Our Lady. We can read one every few days, we can pick up the book and peruse when sleepily chewing toast for breakfast...I can even share some quotes on Facebook!

At the computer table, we have the book Mondays With Mary by Meredith Henning, also a fellow homeschooler. Kept handy ( at a computer, that hub of life!) so that we can pick and choose activities for some of the Marian feasts this month.

Like tomorrow. May 13. Our Lady of Fatima. Anthony and his friend will be making a paper plate sun for a table decoration ( the day the sun danced) and baking Devil's Food Cupcakes ( representing the vision of hell) and covered with blue cream cheese frosting ( representing Mary's mantle of grace).

And more strewing ideas for other feasts this month.... Our Lady Help of Christians ( May 24) and the Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary ( May 31 and son Luke's confirmation anniversary ).

But I will share those ideas another day.

For we have the whole month of May for focused, Marian, unschooling strewing.

"My Immaculate Heart will be your refuge and the way that will lead you to God." Fatima, June 13, 1917
